Iqbal and Faqr

In the realm of Faqr, one has to die before death i.e. the death of self (nafs) is eternal life for the soul. It is where the fire of Divine love circles one’s inward such that the passion takes the person to behold the Reality. The litany that does it all is in reality the greatest name of Allah (Ism al-Azam or Ism-e-Allah Zaat) but it works when the blessed hands of the perfect spiritual guide grant it who is the Universal Divine Man (Mard-e-Mumin or al-Insan al-Kamil). He is hidden in the maze of this world where one has to tear the veils of loving anyone other than Allah. To reach the Divine, first one has to reach his spiritual court.

Iqbal, the sagacious philosopher’s poetry is brimming with all of it. The book in hand not only has the original poetry in Urdu and Persian but for ease of readers its transliteration is also written along with a detailed explanation in English. Iqbal’s point of view is parallel to many other Sufis who are also quoted.


If you are interested in a book consisting of Iqbal’s poetry about Sufism, then this is the perfect book for you. It has been designed for everyone who wants to cherish the poetry of Iqbal but is not acquainted with Urdu or Persian.
